What Would You Do?

If you knew you could not fail, what would you do differently?  Know what I’ve learned in 50 years? All these quotes, cliches, sayings, parables, etc. – they only work if you do.

“No rules for success will work if you don’t”.

“Everything takes longer than we think it will, or longer than we want it to”.

“If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough”.

Quote me.  Love me.  Hate me.  It doesn’t matter.  What matters is what you do.  Got it?

For anyone thinking it’s more sophisticated than this, it ain’t.  Carpe diem!

Michael Jordan On Failure

“I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career.  I have lost almost 300 games.  On 28 occasions, I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and missed.  I have failed over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed”. —  Michael Jordan

Boy this sure sounds familiar….

As Promised…

The three things I did Thursday that scared me:

  1. Asked someone to help me write my first book
  2. Made a business proposal to an unlikely candidate
  3. Made a second business proposal to a likely candidate

Guess what?  It feels great!

Even if I fail, I succeed.

If you don’t understand this concept, you may want to invest in figuring it out.

It’s one of the most powerful and liberating truths life has to offer you.

Simply put:

“Nothing ventured. Nothing gained”.

If not today, when?  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
